“Look Out World” is the record that almost never was. These ten songs represent a dynamic era in the artist's life, telling the story in both melody and lyrics. Redding left behind a career at a New York investment bank to find his voice in Music City, only to produce possibly the least Nashville-sounding album this decade. During the writing and recording of these songs, James endured panic attacks, Lyme disease, Covid, salmonella, a break-up and an IRS audit. The recording took more than 200 hours over the span of 1 year, on equipment worth well under $3000, in a one bedroom apartment in East Nashville smaller than 500 square feet. “Look Out World” marks the 35th release from Redding – his 11th commercial studio work, amid other formats – and arrives 25 years after his first album. For a songwriter in his 40s who refuses to become complacent, 7 years into sobriety and 2 years into EMDR therapy, listening through this album means celebrating a victory with James.
